Go to your local Pharmacist and there is a drug that will take care of it,I am not sure if you need a prescription but if you do I am sure your pharmacist can give your doctor a call. A drug will take care of it don't worry. Try going to your Safeway Pharmacy or King Supers, etc.

One of the symptoms of tape worm infestation is what you mentioned. It is possible but NOT THE MOST COMMON manifestation. You'll know if you have tape worm because you eat a lot but not gain weight, you're anemic (evidenced by lab results) and, the most important part of it all, the segments of the tape worm actually come out of your rear end like chunks of meat (and they crawl too).

Curing them is simple but kind of difficult because you need to get the head of the tape worm (the mother ship, so to speak). Takes multiple treatments and stool exams to check. You'll need to see your doctor about the medication because you'll need a prescription.

When tapeworms spread outside the intestines and form cysts, drug therapy to kill the tapeworms may not be sufficient. You may need to take steroids to reduce inflammation caused by the presence of the tapeworms in tissue throughout the body, and surgery may also be required. The surgery may remove the cysts and the tapeworms, and in some rare cases organ transplants may be required to fully remove the tape worms and cysts throughout the body.

Go to the doctors/hospital. I think they can give you medicine to fight the tape warm and eventually exterminate it.


Nurse Danie
Don't wait. If it's this serious already you need to just go to an urgent care. A month is a long time to wait if you have a parasite in your body.


Joe-Bob
There's an over the counter drug called Combatrin that gets rid of worms. If you have them it will work, but do it on a weekend off because it gives you crazy diarhea

all i can say is be pacient, dont freak out, and mentally prepare yourself for the worse

but you never know, your assumptions may turn out to be wrong it the end


Malice
If you really want to see the doc before that, then go to the emergency room ( but be ready to wait for hours and hours) or find an urgent care center. Its probably not a tape worm at all. So calm down. The doc has to rule out all necessary diagnosis before he could even consider tape worm! Its not like hes going to take one look at you and say " you got tape worms" come on. You need to have tests and stuff to determine if tapeworms are the case. Besides, having those is not really lethal. You will live.


Smillie
WOAH! jeeze chil, if they thought it was something bad athen they would have gotten you in sooner, or just go to the ER. i watched something but its where they diagnose problems sand see what the internet said, and the internet isnt always right,
its human instincts basiccaly to think the worst.
sooo RELAX


Gisselle
Calm down. Dr. Google scared your a** sh*tless. Tapeworms don't work that fast, hun. They can chill in your body for years before you notice their presence. Have you seen your tape-worm? Besides feeding off your food and living in your intestines, its pretty calm. I do doubt that you have a tapeworm but don't worry about it too much.

Ahem, white vinegar might offer some assistance.

You tell em MeMD!

Sounds like a hypochondriac to me. Diagnosing them self with crap from the internet!

Wait til Nov. 23 and have your Optic Neuritus cured!


MeMD
Hi there,

I was referred to you by a concerned person (proudmommy22boys) that saw your posting and thought I could help.

First of all, Tapeworm (Taeniasis) infection is acquired by eating raw or undercooked meat of an infected animal. The larvae from the infected meat develop into an adult tapeworm in the human intestine. Rarely, will a tape worm cause obstruction of the intestines, and even more rare would be the larvae migrating all the way to the brain, causing seizures and other neurological problems.

You don't even know that you have tapeworm. You said you have been to see a Doctor and they gave you a diagnosis for the loss of eyesight.

And that you just read this information online about the loss of eyesight being one of the first symptoms of tapeworm. Tapeworm infestation does not usually cause any symptoms. Infection is generally recognized when the infected person passes segments of proglottids in the stool, especially if the segment is moving. Nothing to do with your eyesight.

If you were, which you have not been. The Doctor would have examined your stool for eggs of T. solium or T. saginata (These are 2 different types of tape worm, either from beef or pork). Once there had been confirmation of the presence of tapeworm, you would have been easily treated with an oral medication. It is usually in a single dose, just one pill. You would have taken it, and the tapeworm infection would have gone away.

So, you just read this untrue information online, decided you have tapeworm without being tested and diagnosed as having them by a Doctor, have already been diagnosed with the cause of your loss of eyesight, have a follow up appointment already made, and don't believe what your Doctor has told you (Even though you think we think we are the smartest people in the world). I really don't know what to say.

Optic Neuritis is inflammation of the optic nerve, and may cause sudden reduced vision in the affected eye.

Sudden inflammation of the nerve connecting the eye and the brain (optic nerve) can cause the nerve to swell and destroy its outer shell (myelin sheath). The inflammation may occasionally be due to a viral infection, or it may be caused by autoimmune diseases such as multiple sclerosis.

Possible causes and symptoms would be:
Sudden (acute) loss of vision in one eye - Which you have.
Changes in the pupil's reactions to bright light.
Loss of color vision.
Pain when you move the eye.

So, I really don't know how (Other than false information from the internet) you came up with your own diagnosis of having tapeworm.

When clearly, as listed above. Is exactly what your Doctor has said that it is. And that is what your appointment on the 23rd is for.

Again, don't know what else to tell you (That you're going to believe).

Good luck and take care!
